R. Hobbiense (Lanata) - a new proposed species not described before, but is also proposed to be the species R. luciferum, but the old description of R. luciferum don't fit. This plant don't have thick woolen red-brown indumentum, but compact green-brown indumentum. No lamp wick can be made of the indumentum. No glands are found on the leaf and ovary (not a Taliensa). om R. Hobbiense
